As it turns out, the manga and I aren’t going to be great friends. Rather than spend the energy on a liveblog that’s increasingly negative, I’m reading each manga act (mostly) silently, and then writing up summaries at the end. I’ll be very candid, which means there’s likely criticism and snark a’plenty about the manga, either wholesale or in details. If that isn’t a thing you feel like reading, please skip this post!
Black Lady is here, and she wants you all to sample her new perfume. Luna-P wants to try! FUCK OFF THIS IS A FRAGRANCE FOR PEOPLE NOT WEIRD CAT HEAD ROBOTS. Luna-P cries. Black Lady doesn’t care. Chibi-Usa, how could you!
Saffir and Demande show up with new toys. Saffir has Hulk Hands … OF DEATH. Demande has a whole new eye to glare with. It’s super effective! The two black crystals say “GWOOO” a lot, and things are probably bad, but I’m inferring.
Black Lady says that she needs nothing else now she has Mamoru, who she keeps distressingly calling “Endymion”. That makes him two for two on the brainwash/Endymion thing, and I’m left questioning why the fuck he’d voluntarily call himself that in Crystal Tokyo. It can’t be a name with pleasant connotations. He could pick anything. Why not “Liam”? KING LIAM THINK ABOUT IT
Anyway, then she frenches her father again, and if I have to see it, so do you.
THIS WAS SCRIPTED AND DRAWN TWICE PLEASE REFLECT ON THAT
Usagi says she’s sorry for being jealous and she loves Chibi-Usa. Then Black Lady sexily kisses Usagi. NO NOT REALLY BUT ADMIT IT YOU BELIEVED ME FOR A SECOND. Instead she throws a tantrum and blows up one of the black crystal things. For all the talk about how these were planet killers, the worst that happens is that everyone has mussy hair and no combs.
At the Gate of Time, Pluto worries.
Back at the Crystal Palace, Usagi becomes a nightlight. I suppose it means she’s protecting it from destruction? She’s glowing, that’s really about all I got. Wiseman tries to demoralize her.
EVEN WISEMAN WON’T PRETEND THE SENSHI MATTER FOR SHIT
“Does he … not see us?”
“I’M LITERALLY STANDING RIGHT HERE.”
“Does this guy have an ass, because I am about to fucking kick it.”
“RIGHT HERE. STANDING. LITERALLY HERE. I CAN REACH OUT AND SMACK USAGI IF I WANT.”
“Ow! I didn’t say it, it’s not my fault!”
“I’d say let’s just go to the library and get drunk, but the porn section sucks, trust me.”
“SHE’S NOT ALONE LOOK.”
“Ow! Stop it! OW!”
“Of course we could write our own porn, I suppose.”
“Perhaps we could petition to be blown up faster.”
No, what really happens is that Usagi doesn’t say one fucking word about this, because of course she doesn’t. Instead, there is yet more glowing. I would love to see her electric bill.
Demande somehow manages to break free of Wiseman’s brainwashing. Not just the new brainwashing, but the old original flavour brainwashing too. The stuff he’s been influenced by for years? Totally gone. The fact that Saffir has been dealing with Demande like that for ages? Irrelevant. Brainwashed Saffir gets in his way, and with an “oh well”, Demande kills him. I assume “tired and a bit bored” is the intended emotional response.
Out of friends and family to kill, Demande turns to Wiseman. He attacks without mercy! The blow is swift and just! Wiseman’s true form is revealed! Demand once again speaks for us all.
No wait, Black Lady is really Wiseman’s true form!
No wait, the literal planet Nemesis is really Wiseman’s true form!
“Why oh why did we name it ‘Nemesis’!” Endymion wails. “That seems like such a poor choice on reflection!”
“Yeah, almost as bad as sending your worst enemy there and forgetting all about them!” calls Minako from her off-panel cast chair where she sits sipping a latte and nibbling on a craft services blueberry muffin.
“Your turn,” Rei says, drawing a card, her back to the scene.
“Shouldn’t we studying our lines?” Ami asks.
They all laugh and laugh and laugh.
Things are very GWOOO at the Gate of Time. Pluto worries so hard she has a flashback.
She remembers Queen Serenity telling her about the three rules she must never break. THEY ARE TABOO. Somehow, Serenity keeps a straight face as she says this. If you’re wondering why Pluto looks a little off there, by the way? TURNS OUT SHE’S A FUCKING CHILD
I’M GOING TO YELL ABOUT THIS MORE IN THE NEXT SUMMARY DON’T WORRY
For the moment, note that the three “taboos” are: 1. traveling through time, 2. leaving the Time Gate, and third is a DRAMATIC CUT AWAY FROM THE SCENE. But since you’ve seen S, you already know the third is stopping time.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE’VE ALREADY SEEN HER VIOLATE TWO OF THESE BECAUSE I DON’T THINK ANYONE EXPLAINED TO SEVEN-YEAR OLD PLUTO WHAT THE WORD “TABOO” ACTUALLY MEANT
Now a planet, and yet still somehow also on Earth(?), Death Phantom/Wiseman/Black Lady/Nemesis drops his tragic anime backstory. By “backstory” I mean “I was evil and died and now I’m a planet.” What, that’s not enough for you? FUCK YOU THIS IS THE SAILOR MOON MANGA
Demande doesn’t take this news well, for reasons that boil down to “I thought I was working for the betterment of the planet”. YOU CAN’T GET MORE LITERAL ABOUT THAT THAN THE PLANET BEING SENTIENT AND TELLING YOU WHAT TO DO AND THEN DOING IT I GENUINELY DO NOT UNDERSTAND YOUR PROBLEM HERE MY GUY
Usagi glows some more. Then the glowing starts to go out. Oh fuck! But all we know how to do is stand here and look at the glow! Now what?!
Never fear, Tiny Kitten is here! She runs to Pluto and insists that she go to help everyone. It’s what Pluto’s been angsting about this whole time so she really wants to, but Tiny Kitten, it is taboo!
“You didn’t care about it being fucking taboo to leave the gate last issue when you wandered off into a storm that you ALSO said was taboo!” Tiny Kitten squeaks adorably.
“lol right?” says Minako, sinking her teeth into a jelly doughnut.
Pluto dithers some more, prompting Tiny Kitten to offer to guard the Time Gate in Pluto’s stead. And, because she is Tiny Kitten, she does it in the single most adorable way possible.
AWW RIGHT?? AWWWW
But while you’d think the correct answer would be “Tiny Kitten, you are the most pure and beautiful thing in this or any other world and you will be cherished all your days”, what Pluto actually says is “Sweet, thanks!” AND FUCKS OFF
POINT ONE: TINY KITTEN GUARDING THE GATE OF TIME IS NOT YOU GUARDING THE GATE OF TIME WHICH YOU MUST DO FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER BECAUSE TO LEAVE IS TABOO
POINT TWO: IF THE GATE OF TIME IS SO GODDAMN CRITICAL THEN YOU WOULDN’T LEAVE A FUCKING KITTEN TO GUARD IT PARTICULARLY IN THE MIDDLE OF A WAR ON TIME ITSELF THEREBY PROVING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING CHRONAL BUSY WORK FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS
POINT THREE: IF ALL WE NEED IS SOMEONE AT THE GATE TO PUNCH TICKETS THEN LITERALLY ANYONE CAN DO IT AND YET IN THE PERIOD OF TIME PRE-FALL OF THE SILVER MILLENNIUM AND CRYSTAL TOKYO NOT ONE FUCKING PERSON OFFERED TO STAND THERE SO YOU COULD HAVE AN AFTERNOON OFF
PLUTO YOUR ENTIRE BLOODY LIFE IS A LONG CON AND YOU FELL FOR IT
Still, she arrives in the 30th Century (Taboos One and Two broken AGAIN), to find Usagi glowing, but also sometimes maybe not glowing, and people seem worried but also not? On Black Lady’s command, Mamoru takes Usagi’s ginzuishou, but then Demande takes them both from Black Lady. Somehow everyone knows that the two crystals can’t touch or they’ll destroy time and space itself, and they tell him he can’t do that.
“FUCKING SJWS!” Demande howls as he hits the reblog button and pushes the ginzuishous ever closer.

Me again with my Sherlolly fanfiction suggestions ^^ I went through my favourite Sherlolly fanfictions of all times once again to pick a few of them that I thought I’d share with you guys. (For audience of M this time) All of them are in the genres of Romance, Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Drama, Friendship… A lot of mature stuff going on in these fanfictions obviously. Some of them are one-shots, some of them are multi-chapter fanfictions. Hope you enjoy them. And I’m always open to other suggestions, just send a message to my inbox. (You can simply open these fanfictions in a new tab by just clicking on their names.)
3 Break-up sex (Rated:M): She should have known it was never going to last. (Written for the ‘50 Reasons to have (Sherlolly) sex’ meme on tumblr) -by Doctor WTF
EnCounters 1: Counterintuitive(Rated M): Sherlolly post-Reichenbach. Molly’s hiding a not-so-dead detective in her flat and he’s driving her mad…in more ways than one. What happens when Sherlock finally puts two and two together concerning Molly Hooper’s feelings for him? -by MizJoely

She still won’t love him. Alternate Reality AU. Part two of the Mirror verse series.
-by Adi Who is Also Mou
Something More Sinister (Rated M): Molly didn’t know if this was just some sort of friendly rivalry between the two men or something more sinister. -by Ambur
Stutter (Rated M):
“It was primal. That was Sherlock’s only explanation for the feeling that enveloped him as he watched Molly. He could admit that even he was subject to basal instincts from time to time. Simply biology.” Slight TRF spoilers, mostly just a fun Sherlolly one-shot -by AsteraceaeBlue
When the Sun Stands Still (Rated M): What happened between Molly and Sherlock one solstice night, when they were still at university. -by Petra Todd
A Reckoning (Rated M):So, this is the life of Molly Hooper. Humble laboratory assistant, lonely cat owner, friend, partner-in-crime, companion, sometimes lover…just an ordinary woman who always mattered. -by librarianmum
Yes, I admit it… I read a lot of M rated fanfiction… Don’t judge me! :(

Invisible Wings (Rated M):
The year is 1963; a new Professor proves to be a furious distraction to all, students and professors alike. One exception being Miss Hooper who intends not to be dreamy about Professor Holmes. Unfortunately enough one cannot always escape ones faith. -by conchepcion
Taming the Shrewd (Rated T):Post-Reichenbach. Molly cares for Sherlock as he recovers and stays in hiding after the fall, but living with Sherlock can be full of challenges. Will she put up with it, or put him in his place? A compliment piece to my other story ‘A New Page’, but works on its own too. -by magentacr
Mirror, Mirror (Rated M):
His hands are not calloused from playing a violin. Alternate Reality AU. Part One of the Mirror verse series. (this one has continuation stories of it’s own. you might wanna check them out too) -by Adi Who is Also Mou

Molly Hooper and the Adventure of being Sherlock’s flatmate (Rated M):With John moving out and Mrs. Hudson leaving to live with her family in Australia, Molly finds herself as Sherlock’s new flatmate (she has no idea how this happened). Can this end in something other than a big fat disaster? Post-Reichenbach, chaos, fun, fluff and steam later on. Sherlolly with a pinch of Warston-by KendraPendragon
The Story Of Us (Rated M): Molly Hooper was human, she made mistakes…but Sherlock Holmes was not one of them. 18 year old Molly meets 20 year old Sherlock her first week at University. What starts as an unlikely friendship evolves into something that neither of them can nor want to contain…But what was that saying? The higher you climb, the harder you fall? M for later chapters. -by Blaire Nightshade
The Science of Perception (Rated M):Two years after the fall, Sherlock has come home to a new complication in his well-ordered existence - the shy pathologist he once trusted with his life. Can he now trust her with his heart, or is she simply a problem that needs solving? In the meantime, a rash of seemingly unrelated murders has followed him home. Who is behind them and why? Blatant Sherlolly. Rating changed to M. -by Tallulah99
